Pancit Palabok is a Filipino noodle dish with thick bright colored orange sauce topped with shrimp, eggs, chicharon, green onions, garlic chips and smoked fish or tinapa flakes. In Filipino cuisine, pancit means noodles and I am guessing it is called Palabok due to it's various toppings.
(It is when your friend is trying to tell you different things or their words go around or spinning then you say "Marami ka pang Palabok" ) :)
Palabok's secret aside from the sauce are the toppings which are boiled eggs, green onions, shrimp, chicharon (fried pork skin) and tinapa (smoked fish) flakes. The more smoked fish flakes you put, the better tasting and flavorful your Palabok will be.
The sauce is not hard to make as well. It is ground pork sauteed in garlic and onion, fish sauce, water or pork broth), shrimp cube, anatto powder for color and cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
